Breast tumor, painful. Did i suppose to go into surgery to find out if it cancerous or beginning?

A female friend of mine 23-25 years old and she went to the doctor complaining of pain in both breasts and the doctor said to take an ultra mammogram , and found out there is a marble sized tumor . They gave her pain medication but it has not been working. Is she supposed to go into surgery to find out if it cancerous or benign? How long can she wait? Is cancer painful? And some information her mother and grandmother had colon cancer. She is about 110 or 115, and 5 3 or 5 2.

I can understand your concern.

Generally breast cancer are not painful to start with. Infections are commonly painful.

Better investigation will be bilateral mammogram of breast.

Mammogram can predict the nature of the lesion.

If any tumor found, then better to go for a core needle biopsy. Consult your surgeon.
